Up nor down

A poem

People are like hair on a rotating ball,
raised and wiggling on the light side,
flat and still on the dark side.

Lay down on your back,
you are wearing the Earth as a backpack.

Do a push-up,
you are benching the planet.

Jog around the block,
you are balancing a ball with your feet.

The sky is a reverse hole in the ground.
The only thing holding you on that surface is time.

I teach people how to see the matrix metrics.
Monkeys and sunsets make me happy.
